WHAT IS NECK LIPOSUCTION?
Your neck can add to or detract from your appearance. The aging process and even genetics can cause fat to accumulate in the neck region, altering your profile and creating a double chin. Liposuction can help remove those fatty deposits so that your neck’s true shape can be revealed. Optimize your youthfulness by removing fat on your neck that isn’t responding to diet and exercise. Dr. Nimtz can help you with skillful neck liposuction.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NECK LIPOSUCTION?
Eliminate excess fat from the area of your jaw, cheek zone, and neck. Neck liposuction can help you eradicate puffy jowls and too chubby cheeks, and it’s particularly effective at addressing fat accumulated in your neck area or under your chin. This fat, also called submental fat, or a double chin, can be addressed with neck liposuction. Your youthful neck and a fresh face will emerge, as your double chin evaporates, and fatty tissues accumulate below your jawline.

WHO’S AN IDEAL CANDIDATE?
Women and men of any age who are in good health and at or near their target weight can be good candidates for neck liposuction. This procedure corrects a variety of concerns, which commonly include:
- Lack of definition between the chin and neck
- A double chin (submental fat) due to genetic predisposition
- An overly full neckline and jowls
Patients looking for a nonsurgical treatment for reducing a double chin might consider KYBELLA® injections instead of liposuction.
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
Neck liposuction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic with intravenous sedation. After assuring your comfort, Dr. Nimtz will insert a thin tube called a cannula through tiny incisions inside your mouth (intraorally) or beneath your chin. He will then gently break up the fat with the cannula and suction it away while carefully sculpting and contouring the treatment area. Once he has achieved the desired contours, your incisions will be closed with sutures. You will likely be able to return home to begin your recovery a few hours after surgery.
CAN IT BE COMBINED WITH OTHER PROCEDURES?
Yes, Dr. Nimtz often performs neck liposuction to complement the results of other facial plastic surgery procedures, which commonly include:
- Facelift surgery to rejuvenate the lower 2/3 of the face.
- Neck lift surgery to tighten lax skin and correct vertical banding.
- Chin augmentation to add definition to the jawline and balance your profile.
- Facial fat transfer to restore volume to the cheeks, under the eyes, and to the temples.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM NECK LIPOSUCTION?
Patients are generally ready to return to work within a week or two following their neck liposuction procedure. After surgery, you will be asked to wear a special compression dressing for several days to minimize swelling and bruising. Dr. Nimtz will monitor your progress while you heal.
